'Phenomenal Swag' searches high and low across the Internets for NBA-related goods you never knew you needed. E-mail us any products you find here.
If your apartment/house is anything like mine, you probably have an empty spot in the corner of your dining room or living room that needs to be filled. But with what, right? I mean, sure, that cheap floor lamp or fake plant fills the space, but the whole thing just doesn't work. It looks forced. And too much like an Ikea catalogue.
Thankfully, we have an alternative, Martha. Remember back in February when Magic center Dwight Howard took the Sprite Slam Dunk competition to the next level by changing in a phone booth to become "Superman"? Well, next week, you're going to have a chance to own that exact prop. Yup. Corner problem solved! Awkward interior design high-five!
Beginning Monday, March 16 at 4 p.m. ET the auction for the actual phone booth from the Slam Dunk competition will begin online at auctions.nba.com. The phone booth stands a little under 8-feet high and weighs 170 pounds — aka Shawn Bradley's old measurements.
Included in the package is a pro-cut '09 NBA All-Star Eastern Conference jersey signed by the Dwight Howard. Both items are authenticated by the NBA and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
So there you go. Hook up an actual phone line to it, maybe install a toilet, and you'll never have to leave your living room again. Just in time for March Madness.
